The Full Diet is a program that is designed to help people to be able to lose weight. It is based on the guidance provided by a book written by Dr. Michael Snyder, a weight loss surgeon. This diet plan doesn’t require a dieter to have to count calories or eliminate certain types or specific foods. Instead, it is geared toward teaching dieters to understand how to achieve a feeling of fullness while still eating less food. This is done by teaching dieters to better understand the way that hunger occurs within their bodies, and how to select the proper foods to eat.
The target market for this diet is quite broad, as it includes people who would like to lose a few pounds for cosmetic reasons as well as people who would like to lose a lot of weight in order to improve their health. Typically speaking, this group is aiming to lose between five and eighty pounds. It is meant for individuals who are overweight or obese, but not to the extreme of being morbidly obese. According to the author, people who adhere to the Full Diet can expect to lose one to two pounds each week.
Following the diet means that you will make your way through two different stages. The first stage is four weeks long and it is known as the beginning phase. The second stage is called the maintenance phase. It is possible for dieters to skip the beginning phase and dive right into maintenance, but that is not necessarily recommended, as those four weeks have been designed to give dieters the ability to rev up their attitudes, understanding, and bodies for faster weight loss. The author warns that by skipping it, weight loss may not be as rapid as is possible.
The Full Diet does not place any foods off limits. It recommends a certain style of eating that involves limiting foods that include white flour and instead placing a primary focus on foods that contain healthy fats, fiber, and lean protein. Dieters on this program are also supposed to eat foods in the fruits and vegetables group. There are two indulgences (such as alcohol) permitted per week, so that dieters can still enjoy some of the things they love, without feeling like they are being held back, too far.
The diet recommends that dieters exercise five days per week, with two days of rest.
